Volume At Price To Filter Set-ups And Exits

Follow up to 3-6 Master's Class

As you know we've been studying volume at price to assist us in confirming trade set-ups and signals and it is proving very helpful. The chart attached illustrates. The sell set-up in the Euro - on the right -- was much more attractive because the volume peak at the same level as the bottom our sell zone. While the sell set-up in the Aussie on the left was a good one, it was not as attractive given the lower levels of volume which had traded at that price previously. Also notice on the Aussie chart on the left how the peak volume level stopped today's sell off. Volume stops trend.

I will be adding a section on Volume at Price to the Graduate course shortly. I can say that to date using VatP as a filter for our trade set-ups has cut the loss probability nicely.

If you need the volume at price app for MT4 let me know and I can e-mail it to you.

See you in class next Tuesday - and have a great weekend!
